Care4us

My Participation Worker

It's my job to support young people to have a say about their experience of care while they are looked after by Wakefield Council. I am also here to ensure that young people, like yourself know their rights and are supported to have their opinions listened to.     

 

I help young people to run the Children in Care Council and I am always looking for young people to join and make sure they get a chance to put their views to the managers.

 

 I run lots of other groups and events for children and young people in foster care, residential care and those getting ready to leave care.

 

Groups are a great way to meet other young people in care, develop confidence and new skills and have fun - at the same time as making a difference to the service you get while looked after.

 

 I have supported our Children in Care Council to develop 'A Pledge' for looked after children. This is the Council's promise to you about how you will be treated and what services you will get whilst you are in care.

 

I work a lot with Barnardo's Children's Advocacy and they can  help looked after children and young people who may have a concern or a complaint or need help to talk to a carer or social worker.
